    Opening round, as told by The League -

    The weekend started off well. I dragged old OJ off the porch to act as a work mule this weekend -

    [​IMG]

    Hmmm, I had not started, washed, nor even paid any attention to the old crock since Roswell last November. Some Haystack mud still clinged to the skidplate -

    [​IMG]


    Loading up, rarin' to go!!!

    [​IMG]


    Arrive, do some cleanup on the loop and sections, hang out with old friends, and...

    Campfire!!! :D

    [​IMG]


    Got up Saturday morning to discover a flat tire on the Team bike. :huh

    I had noticed it the night before, and texted Hammer to save the day. He came through with a new tube, installed right before the horn sounded for Saturday's Trial. Not a good way to start the day -

    [​IMG]


    Stupid cheap-assed Chen Shin tubes really ought to last more than 5 years anyway. I'm gonna fire off an angry e-mail.... :bluduh

    The Team bike did get a new plate just for this season, courtesy of The Hammer -

    The League. 'Nuff said! :evil

    Signup, with an old twist -

    Yup, Hammer sportin' da dreads!! :lol3

    Day One. Some Carnage.


    We are not even to our first section when this happens to Yosemite's TY -

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Yowza! A quickie fix, and we are on our way to our first section! Go get 'em!!!

    [​IMG]


    Oh, this is gonna be a long day!!! :lol3



    Some random shots of day one -

    Ah, young love between TY80's -

    [​IMG]


    Hey baby! Remember when we did this on the way to Sturgis on our first TY80?

    [​IMG]

    :lol3


    Day one ended with a killer feed put on by Old Geezer and his teenage bride :nono, with the storms moving in. Wind, rain, hail, sleet, locusts, plague, et al came in Saturday evening. After the worst part had moved on, it was an early night for the campfire kids.


    Sunday. More Carnage!!

    The wind had blown hard all night, but at least it rained too! :lol3 We're not afraid, it's time to go ride!!

    Oh wait, a flat on Yosemite's bike, and the pipe had come adrift on the Team TY!! :huh

    The Fred Flintstone tools did not work on the pipe -

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    So Yosemite Matt went back to camp for some slime and tools. I did not get a shot of Yosemite sliming the rear tire of his TY, but did get a shot of Hammer fixing the Team TY -

    [​IMG]

    Gonna be a long day.... :huh :lol3

    We had an interloper join in on the TY festivities. JB Brown -

    Hey Yosemite! How well does that bike run again? -

    [​IMG]

    :lol3


    We fought rain, hail, and snow all day long. This loomed on the horizon most of the day -

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    But we don't care, for we are...

    The League!!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    :evil



    At the end of the day, I had a really bad get-off on the loop to section 8. Over the bars, bashed in the fuel tank, and broke a fin off of the new cylinder head -

    [​IMG]

    :cry



    The nasty weather continued on the way home, but at least it was a tail wind!! :lol3

    Battered, bruised, and scarred, The League will be back!

    More to come... :evil

    Wow! I forgot about that. Last time I was there I had a hard time getting up that tire on the 4RT!

    I don't know on the KT...he came by the house two days ago and said he was bringing it by that night...haven't seen him since. Still rather have a TY! :deal

    Thanks for the encouragement guys.
    Played with the new gal a bit tonight, and I learned a couple of things.
    1. TY's are a hoot:D
    And
    B. The clutch action is a bit different than my Beta :eek1
